These are the last few minutes of EA-Land at the See You Soon Party in EA Town Hall, hosted by EA's Parizad. Tears are shed, final goodbyes are made, and lasting memories are created before the plug is pulled and the world is brought to an end. The party was held in the Community Pub (Test Center 3) and EA Town Hall (EA-Land), beginning Thursday, July 31st, 11 p.m and with a scheduled ending of 4 a.m. PDT. The game world was officially shut down as of 4:35am PST, August 1st, 2008. If you have a fast connection, I recommend downloading the high quality DivX version on the left.

Is this guy represenatative of post modern society?
Very strange becoming emotional about ending a virtual world and your virtual community. People have to go out and rub shoulders with real people.
